    guys,

    I very much doubt they're going to go to a mcthrowdown. They have a successful, profitable business model and they're not going to endanger that in anyway (and they'll tell their students not to go either)

    They've got to have some grip on reality, the act of completely delusional grandeur I'm sure is part of their sales pitch (and lets face it - its going to fool most people). I doubt any of them would actually think they have a hope in hell of competing against a well trained mma guy.

    I think the way to handle this is to get a tv crew in there to expose them as frauds like someone here already mentioned. Or go in there for a challenge match with a camera cos I don't think they're going to test their 'skills' against anyone unless they are up against a wall and have no other choice.

    Bunyip, any chance of scanning the flyers on here? I'm curious.

    And well done - you're a Prince among men, Sir :)

    I think Bunyip is better than all the Gracies put together.

    Bunyip, this sounds just like the experience I went through, you were right! What a bunch of crap!

    Jinksy - Jking designed the flyers. They're in another recent thread in Generel Bullshido.

    As far as McDojo-style approaches go, C.O.R.E. is brilliant. It allows the instructors distance from the predatory demands for payments. Hey, Im just here to turn you into t l3thal fighting machine. If I could teach students for free, I would. Anyhoo . . . someone from C.O.R.E. is waiting for you on the phone.

    The recruiting structure is almost identical to that of that employed by Temple Kung Fu. The main differences seem to be that they actually re-invest money into the training environment and pay their instructors well. At least some people are getting something out of the training.

    Does anybody know a good hacker? What we need is some code monkey to redirect the WestWind URL to this topic! Or better yet, redirect it to a one page site that completely exposes them for what they really are. If we're going to take up a collection for something, that's certainly something I'd pony up a couple of sawbucks for.

    Hey wait a minute, I got a Kyokushin bb doing kata like that!

    Well actually my wrist would have been in an angle on the punch that would be a lot less likely to break it...
